Choice of Nursing I chose nursing as a career because I knew it was my calling. I have the desire to help and care for people who are in need and this was what drew me into this profession. Being a nurse gives me that rewarding feeling, knowing that I’ve made a positive difference in my patient’s life. I love interacting with people and nursing gives me that chance to do it every day.

One of the best hospitals around and that’s where I get to be taught the majority of what I will use for the rest of my life.

I have had many life experiences that have influenced my interest in becoming a nurse. My father is a family physician in the semi-rural area where I grew up. As I became old enough to participate, I had chances to assist my dad in minor procedures and clerical office management. I have also assisted my father outside of the office in helping to stitch up siblings and other family members after minor accidents occurred. I knew early on that one of my desires and strengths would be to challenge myself mentally while being able to empathize with others and provide a valuable service to them.
I always believe that to be a good and competent doctor, a person needs to realize that they are not only dealing with the disease or illness, but also the patients carrying the disease. Patients are humans, they have feelings and emotions. Therefore, knowledge of human biology is not the only thing a person must bring it with them in order to be a good doctor. The definition of health given by the World Health Organization is “ health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Bio psycho social model developed by George L. Engel shows that not only biological factors but also social and psychological factors are the main determinants of illness and disease; these three

In addition, my extensive employment history has granted me with the work ethic required to endure the strenuous work schedule of both a medical student and physician. Furthermore, working at the University of Miami Hospital, specifically, has enlightened me about the practicalities of providing direct patient care. Ultimately, being able to work while enrolled full-time in courses has taught me the art of time management; a trait I believe will be essential to my success while in medical
